About This Database

An Exploration of World History, from Prehistory through the 1500s

Now fully revised with a completely redesigned, user-friendly interface, Ancient and Medieval History Online provides thorough coverage of nine civilizations—ancient Egypt, the ancient Near East, ancient Greece, ancient Rome, ancient and medieval Africa, medieval Europe, the Americas, ancient and medieval Asia, and the Islamic World—from prehistory through the 1500s. Each civilization's key people, events, and topics are brought to life through tablet/mobile-friendly videos and slideshows, primary sources, timelines, maps and graphs, and more.
